How Beckham changed American football

According to experts, Beckham has a great influence on the success of the MLS.

The American Professional Football League has just opened its 20th season on March 8. On this occasion, the fans remembered David Beckham’s contribution to the tournament that was once considered not worth watching and just a “retirement” place for players in Europe.

Although Becks started off unfavorably due to persistent injuries, in the end Beckham’s influence was enough to make Galaxy fans remember him as a legend.

LFL got the idea and came out of the Super Bowl. During the break during the Super Bowl matches, the girls dressed up as sexy, cheerleading girls playing with baseball balls caused a fever for TV viewers. That is one of the main reasons why the baseball game has a large number of viewers on the US television system.

LFL is a sport with a very special starting point

Mitch Mortaza – a person who has a great influence on American sports has just come up with the idea of ​​turning this form of entertainment into a real sport. Instead of bulky clothes like male colleagues, female athletes will wear underwear when competing with protective equipment at the head, elbows, elbows …

Initially, the LFL had only 10 teams participating, but currently, there are 12 teams participating in the US tournament. Each team will have 14 athletes, including 7 defending players and 7 others attacking. The matches will take place in 2 halves of 17 minutes each. Unlike other tournaments, the LFL mostly takes place in the fall and winter. The teams will be divided into two areas, East and West, to compete with each other. The top two teams of the region will compete in the playoffs to win the championship. In the last two seasons, the champion team has been the Los Angeles Temptation.

American football is seen as a cross between sport and entertainment. In the LFL, wearing undergarments is a must. Even the BTC tournament will be fined if the athlete wears discreet costumes when competing. However, to ensure the safety of the athletes, the protectors at the head, elbows, legs… are still necessary tools.

Initially, the tournament gathered 12 teams, but now it is reduced to only 7. In addition, the tournament is also held in Canada and Australia. In 2015, LFL Europe will be born with teams from Barcelona, ​​Manchester, Frankfurt, Rhein and Dublin.
